Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
I stumbled across this, and was interested by the premise. Unfortunately, it makes huge sweeping statements- most of which claimed as fact are in actuality a point of view to serve the program with maximum sensationalism, at the expense of perspective and accuracy. It is presented with quick editing and flash presentation to appeal to the greatest demography wholly on the grounds that sex, as is the subject, sells. Fine, just research better, edit better and narrate accurately so that half truths and misconceptions aren't passed off as fact in order to sell the show. the people off the street weighing in on inane questions such as what invention would be of greatest import, or what is the most important contribution to sex is simply boring and really brings the show down even further.
If there were more substance with greater perspective of the events, people and ideas presented this could be a really interesting program!
I really hope this show can develop, as I think it has an interesting foundation. It could be quite good, but at the moment it is like watching a high school film project.
